The Wiggles in Abu Dhabi
The Wiggles talk to Time Out about their upcoming Yas Island gig
You’re back barely 12 months after your first visit. You must like it here?
We had such a great time on our last trip we could not keep away.
We were very disappointed that the Big Red Car didn’t make it last time. Did it fail it’s MOT?
The Big Red Car does so much traveling in our shows that it does need a rest sometimes. And it is difficult to drive it over the water to come to Abu Dhabi.
This will be Murray’s first visit to the UAE. Do you think he’ll write a song about it?
Murray loves to write songs and play them on his guitar. He’s just finishing working on our latest DVD ‘Ukelele Baby’ so let’s see what he comes up with next!
Geoff was pretty sleepy last time he was here. Is that because he’s getting on a bit?
Jeff is always sleepy but when he is awake he has lots and lots of energy. We have so much fun on stage with our fans saying, ‘Wake up Jeff!’
One of your biggest hits is ‘Master Pasta’. Have you ever considered singing a song about hummous?
We love to sing songs about our favourite foods especially healthy foods that give us energy and are good for our bodies. Hummous is yummy!
Tom Cruise and Spider Man have both been up the Burj Khalifa recently. Will you all be visiting it too?
If we have time we would love to visit the Burj Khalifa – using the elevator. We will not climb the outside of the building. That would be dangerous.
Can you give us a few hints about the show?
We will bring our Wiggly dancers and our special friends Wags the Dog, Dorothy the Dinosaur, Henry the Octopus and Capatin Feathersword to perform in our show in Abu Dhabi. Together we will sing and dance all your favourite Wiggly songs.
The Wiggles will be performing in Abu Dhabi, at the Flash Forum, Yas Island, Abu Dhabi on Friday May 13 and Saturday May 14 with shows at 11am and 2pm. Tickets cost Dhs200-250 from www.timeouttickets.com.By Time Out Kids staff
